Okay – so here’s a post I thought I would NEVER do. Ball-gowns, prom dresses?

Now, I’m certainly not your glitz and glam, floor length, diamanté, demure kinda gal. I wore a basic, clean cut, emerald dress from Topshop Unique to my own prom.  The thought of wearing something sparkly and encrusted with diamonds has always cringed me out and screamed ‘tacky’. However, I was forced to try something different last week.

I know what you’re thinking… why are we talking about proms in SEPTEMBER? Well, it was the last episode of my TV series and there was a prom being held at the college. As soon as I was told I had to get a prom dress I thought ‘Great, now’s the time to step out of my comfort zone and try something new!’. I mean – when would I ever get the chance to have a prom again? I wanted to have fun with it and see what it was like to be one of those girls who go dress shopping for the most outrageous dress and for it to be like a scene from ‘Say yes to the dress’.  And as it was going to be on TV – you HAVE to go all out in order for it to be noticed.

Here’s 3 dresses I found on my search to become Prom Queen. Maybe you’re reading this just for fun or even to draw inspiration for your prom next year – it’s never too early to search for the perfect dress.Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

This dress is from Cinderella’s Prom in my hometown of Brighton. This is PURE prom in my opinion but I loved the Chloe vibes it had going on.  Had a real ethereal feel to it and fitted like a glove.

The next dress is actually from respected Indian designer Rocky Star. Obviously on the more expensive side – Beyonce, and the Pussycat Dolls to name a few has worn Rocky Star pieces. I can’t imagine many people have worn these dresses to proms – more like red carpets.

I adore the deep split to this dress and encrusted waistline. Definitely a more high fashion option. 

Last up we have iconic prom label – Jovani purchased from Dress 2 Party. With a hefty price tag, prom go-ers still fail to resist these dresses and I can see why. To add to this glamorous look I had the help of amazing make up artist Laura Louise and hair stylist Steph from ZXAAR HAIR. Click their names to be directed to their sites. You may want to book them for your prom next year 😉

Have you ever seen me so done up? Haha. 


Happy BLOG day! AND a Happy Birthday to my boyfriend who turned 21 on Sunday. To celebrate, we checked into the immaculate Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster followed by a truck load’a food and a suave dinner overlooking the thames. The best part about checking into a hotel room is that nerve wracking/exciting moment when you slot your keycard in and open the door to the COMPLETE unknown. The excitement for what your room is going to look like is overwhelming. Having checked into about 300 hotels in the past couple of years together – the novelty never seems to ware off! Luckily we opened our room door to the chicest room with the most spectacular view of THE Big Ben himself and was only a matter of minute before there was a knock at the door with a big chocolate (Matilda style) cake, macaroons and a plateful of goodies. Hospitality at it’s finest. Here is my little photo journal of our stay. No comments necessary – just simplicity and chicness.

Hello my blog babes’! So excited to share this shoot with you styled completely by ME.

In the past I’ve had some amazing stylists assist me on shoots – mainly because I was so busy working, I didn’t have time to ‘pull’ the clothes myself. However, now things are a bit more laid back for my and I’m the director of MY OWN career – I love nothing more than styling my shoots. It makes you feel so much more of a ‘use’ rather than just being the product of a photo. And of course -there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable and how could you not when you’re styling yourself? That being said – I’ve recently been asked to style some pretty cool people (those I cannot name!). If I wasn’t so busy with my own career then I would totally love to do that. 20160216-04

Anyway, here is my most recent shoot with the incredible Faby & Carlo. I love working with these two, they capture every moment so tastefully as well as being the most incredibly kindest people I’ve ever met in my life. And of course a shoot with me would not be complete without the makeup maverick Kristina Theo! Kristina created my makeup looks and James Tarquin was on hair. Stay tuned for the next instalment of photos by this great team next week!

One thing i’m loving at the moment is the concept of long/fancy dresses with the casual/flat shoe. Nothing works better – especially a bright shoe. It makes the dress that little bit less ‘serious’.20160216-2120160216-2620160216-28

So yesterday I did a shoot and interview with the lovely guys at ‘The Comb’ on the sunny but bitterly cold Southbank! Through The Comb is a fashion app that ‘combs’ through 2 million products to find the fashion item you’re looking for or similar items. It’s so great for when you see something you like in a magazine or on TV. Check them out!

I’m so in love with my new Saint Laurent bandana. So today, I teamed it with my suede/leather cropped biker, Hook LDN sunnies and hand-me-down cowboy booties. The jeans are Maje and I’ve linked the top I’m wearing at the bottom.




Happy NEW YEAR! Hope you all enjoyed my last post and you’re enjoying your new style ;).

If you’ve been catching up with my socials you’ll see that I’ve just announced that I’ve signed with NEXT models. They’ll be looking after my fashion,beauty and branding opportunities. I’m pretty humbled to be on the same talent book as Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding!

Anyway…. Obviously my first post of 2016 had to be in my new KILLER Gucci boots. I actually had a whole different outfit planned out until I found this amazing pink roll neck in my dads wardrobe. Luckily it’s long enough to be a dress on me! So my tip of the year is to go search through ya dad’s wardrobes!! Anyway, this outfit reminds me of the 60’s and the post also features my new necklace that Casey got me for Christmas. 2016!lightfog§lightfog3lightfog4lightfog5lightfog7lightfog8lightfog12
